Scientific Advisory Board

Scientific Advisory Board

The Scientific Advisory Boards constitute the central instrument of the self-supporting scientific evaluation of the Max Planck Society. For very basic reasons such monitoring of standards is essential to the Max Planck Society: externally to justify the funds with which it is entrusted and on which there have always been ceilings; internally, to enlarge the scope and competence of the various administrative organs of the Max Planck Society so they may decide on essential aspects of their own development, both in the individual Institutes and overall.
